Pros

A huge company with opportunities nationwide and overseas. They have fantastic benefits and employee perks. In sales you have an opportunity to make money and be on the cutting edge of technology. Union protection.

Cons

Management is not always the best.You can move up but in some cases it will take time. Some long time employees do not want to give up their position. This company is about the bottom line and its shareholders. Sometimes giving unrealistic quotas to meet. Too much like big brother.

Advice to Management

Keep track of your employees and see where they are good at. Give them opportunities to shine elsewhere if that is where their talent is. Give employees a chance to move around and network and build business outside of work.

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits, thanks to the hard efforts put forth by the Communications Workers of America

    Cons

    Upper management wants to destroy the union, lowering wages to comparable levels of those on the other side of the Verizon house---Verizon Wireless, which is non-union.

    Advice to Management

    Collective Bargaining enhances quality of life. Treat your employees with dignity and respect and they will produce for you.

    Pros

    Verizon still Profitable company in 2013

    Cons

    I worked for MCI, but Verizon bought it. They took coffee machines from brake rooms, cancel option work from home. Management doesn’t care about people. We are just numbers for them. They feel like they owe you. They may tell you to work 12 hours a day 6-7 days a week with out pay. Looks like IT moving out of US. My group is only 10% onshore. in 2013 laid off in IT going every month

    Advice to Management

    Keep knowledge in a company
    Really take care of people, not just explained what Verizon expect from them
    Make employees enjoy the work and not think what they need to do to survive one more laid off
